Cape Town - Golden Arrows climbed to the top of the Premiership table with a fine come-from-behind 2-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday.

After a tepid first half, Alfred Ndengane fired the hosts ahead after 49 minutes, but the visitors were level through a Nkanyiso Mngwengwe header 11 minutes later.

And Arrows completed the comeback when Wayde Jooste netted late on to seal all the points for Clinton Larsen against his former club.

The result took Arrows to nine points and elevated them to the league summit, while Celtic dropped to the basement after a second loss in three matches.

Abafana Bes'thende started the game on the front foot against a struggling Celtic outfit. Arrows went close as early as the third minute.

A free-kick from Vuyani Ntanga was met by Lerato Lamola but his glancing header went wide of the post.

Musa Nyatama had a shot at goal on the half-hour mark but he failed to trouble Maximilian Mbaeva in the Arrows goal.

Siwelele took the lead five minutes after the restart. The lively Kabelo Mahlalesa set up Ndengane, whose deflected effort found the back of the net.

Larsen's men got an equaliser on the hour mark as Mngwengwe scored a powerful header from a Jooste corner, and the creator then turned goal scorer when Lamola found Jooste, who kept his cool to slot the ball home and give his team all three points at the death.
